Manimal's Two Moms

Kenneth Faried might be a "Manimal" on the court, but off the court he is an advocate for same-sex marriage and a fierce supporter of his two moms. The Denver Nuggets forward sat down with his mothers to speak out on behalf of civil unions in a video, uploaded by OneColorado, an advocacy group dedicated to securing and protecting equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Coloradans and their families. "I support civil union, because it gives people -- gays and lesbians -- the right to make decisions on their own," he says in the video. "If they want to get married and let them choose who they want to be with."

His mothers married in New Jersey in 2007. "Nobody can ever tell me I can't have two mothers, because I really do," Faried says. When Colorado passed a bill allowing gay couples to form civil unions on Wednesday, Faried expressed his hopes for more. “A lot of people [are] saying civil union,” he told KDVR. “I don’t like it being called that because I can get married to a female and it can be called a marriage. Why can’t a female be married to a female and male be married to a male and it be called a marriage? You still have the same thing, same love and happiness.”

That's a part of his life I wasn't aware of. He has a unique family history and he's standing up for a cause he believes in, which I respect.
